Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

I'm a long range shooter and constantly shoot the 210gr. Berger in my .300 win mag. I worked for a while on the load, it seem like it took forever to get it perfect, but I'm able to get .25 MOA and less with it easy now. I run 11 thousands off the lands and 79.5gr of retumbo. I'm getting 3010 FPS. This still carries a lot of energy at 1200 yds. I've also got a .338 RUM. I prefer the .300 because I can shoot it all day. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to take an elk down at 1000 with it.

My first long range group was 4.375 1004 yds off the bi pod. I'm hooked!

NICE SHOOTIN. This talk has got me thinking of dusting off my 300 ultra and turnin it into a tommyhawk or something. That would spank an edge in wind till you got waaaaaay out there.

Actually they are close to the same at 1000 with a 10 mph wind.

Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

Great info Broz, I have been following all of your posts on all the bergers, even the 230s. I don't want to hijack your thread but I have been wanting to ask you a question for a while now. I have a basic rem 700 300 win mag without a break. I have no problem with the recoil. I have been wanting to take it to Phoenix Custom Rifles here in AZ and have them make it a custom. But I am tempted to turn it into a 300 RUM with a break. I want it for my only rifle and I want to hunt deer, elk, and maybe some bear here in AZ and if it happens to be long distance, I want it to be capable to reach out there. What's your thought of a 300 RUM shooting the 215s or 230s? I know it is more expensive to reload for and the barrel life may be less but the extra velocity should have more knockdown power and even more useful, help it buck the wind better. Or should I just stick with the 300 winmag? Thanks for your time.

Gaps, I can't live with the short barrel life of the RUM. I simply shoot too much. I have owned some, and been around several. Plus I use to shoot the 30-378's too. I now am back to the 300 win and happy to be there. Once I get a rifle shooting like my 300 win is I want it to last a while before I have to start over with a new barrel. If you do go with the RUM I would definitely go with the 230's.

Re: I Continue to be Amazed with the 215 Hybrid

thanks for the quick reply! the barrel life kinda has me concerned but I'm pretty sure I don't shoot as much as you do. I feel like I just need to go with the RUM and see for myself if it is worth the extra cost to load and shortened barrel life. But as you responded I was reading about the 7 LRM and it has me thinking about the 180s or even the 195! Ah, decisions....thanks again!
